Never Trust a Man Bun
19 March 2019 - Stockwell Playhouse
Based on a neat and interesting plot device, this is a well-directed play with commendable performances, but lacks real comedic bite to contrast effectively with the darker moments.
17 March 2019 - Queen's Theatre Hornchurch
Coming closer to its contextual roots, this perfectly cast and faithfully-produced version of In Basildon offers bags of humour, even if the last act jars in its sudden change of gear.
The Grenfell Project
16 March 2019 - Hope Theatre
A fine company deserve considerable praise for sensitive delivery of evidence and the portrayal of emotional consequences of the Grenfell fire, whilst suggesting wider implications.
The Crown Dual
15 March 2019 - King's Head Theatre
A parody of Netflix hit, The Crown, blends well-known characters, audience participation and the odd well-worn joke to make for a fun and diverting night out.
